Amazon announced a $60 Alexa-enabled microwave
Has Amazon been taking meetings with Jack Donaghy?
In addition to revamping its Echo lineup on Thursday, Amazon also unveiled a microwave. Yes, everyone’s go-to appliance for reheating, defrosting, and other adventures is getting a 2018 update complete with Alexa voice support.
The AmazonBasics Microwave will set you back $59.99. Just like your existing microwave, there will be presets, but here, Alexa will handle the heavy lifting. There’s a built-in Ask Alexa button; press it and say something like “two minutes and 30 seconds on medium.”
Why a microwave? It’s “the most popular appliance that’s out there today,” according to Amazon, but also “one of the hardest devices to integrate with.”
